The SNMA “See Us” campaign

Over the past few months, our SNMA chapter has participated in the Student National Medical Association's #SeeUs campaign, a campaign which "aims to give imagery behind the fact that racism is a public health issue in the United States." Our chapter gathered 36 Black medical students to reflect on this current moment in history, where unprecedented public health crises and mass movements have collided to shed light on all of the darkness spurred by centuries of systemic racism and white supremacy in the United States. In light of our own historic collective activism here at Brown, we decided to share all of these reflections with the larger Brown community in a special edition newsletter
